“Our experience in buying a home with Michelle exceeded our expectations in every way. She understood from our very first meeting exactly what we were looking for, in fact, she often knew before we did what properties would work and those that would not. Early on, we trusted Michelle completely. She comes to work with you extremely well prepared, with expertise and an excellent knowledge of the entire area. We worked with Michelle for over a year and found her to be most patient, always having our best interest in mind, and willing to address all our concerns and questions. If she didn’t have an answer, she would get you one ASAP. She kept the lines of communication open at all times with a responsiveness that is unequalled. That was especially helpful when it came to buying the “right home”. In fact, when we thought there was ‘no’ deal, Michelle persevered, negotiated, and made the whole thing work. She was with us every step of the way, from offer, to close, to move in, to getting to know the community. She is honest, trustworthy, ethical, professional, but, most of all, a joy to be around. We would highly recommend Michelle Anderson for your Real Estate needs.”

“Michelle Anderson is hands down one of the best realtors I have ever worked with. I can’t say enough about how helpful, knowledgeable, and thorough she is. She assisted us in selling our beloved vacation home. She seemed to understand what it took to prepare the property for sale, identify experts to assess the various inspections needed, and worked well with the other brokers in the area. She took excellent pictures of the property, had ideas to make it look its best and was pleasant and supportive throughout out the entire process.”

“I would like to take the time to thank a person who helped me from 1200 miles away! (We have never met face to face) When you are buying or selling a home, it can be the most stressful situation you may ever experience. I was very careful to do my research and I am glad after checking out her stats, she and I became a team! Michelle is tech-savy, experienced, educated, forward thinking and a problem solver. My experience of selling my home was nothing like past experiences. We have sold three homes in the last few years and this one was seamless. Michelle’s professional manner on how she handles/explains things is top notch! YOU would be lucky to have her on your team and getting things done for you! I am so grateful I found her. Closed on my house in Angels Camp less than a week ago. We were on the market for only one day and then under contract. If you want to sell or buy, she is the one you want to call! Thanks Michelle Port Anderson! YOU Rock!

“Michelle was the perfect Realtor for us. Her communication and negotiation skills were excellent. Although it took us a full year, she was able to find us the perfect home. She knows our area and housing market very well. We would highly recommend Michelle and will use her expertise again!”

“We had the pleasure to work with Michelle Anderson on a recent property purchased in the Blue Lake Springs subdivision of Arnold, CA. Not only is Michelle exceptionally communicative, professional, organized and efficient, but her solid knowledge of the overall buying/ purchasing process and requirements has made for a smooth transition. We cannot thank Michelle enough for making our vacation home purchasing dream come true and would highly recommend her to anyone!”

“Michelle Anderson is a model of professionalism. Her preparation, presentation and scheduling of available properties was smooth and seamless. Michelle’s knowledge of the area, prices and values all come together in the first meeting. She knows when to listen, and knows when to advise. My wife and I relocated from the Bay Area in March of 2015 to Copperopolis, and after many interviews with several other agents, we selected Michelle. We couldn’t be happier, in fact we think we were very lucky. In reviewing the purchase documents of our new home, Michelle sat right next to me and read EVERY page and paragraph, to insure all the i’s were dotted and the t’s crossed. In our opinion, you may be wasting your time with someone else. This transaction could not have been smoother without Michelle and her team. Thank you Michelle.”​

“Michelle is an absolute joy! Professional & fun, she worked tirelessly to insure that we found just the right home that met with our unique needs. We were relocating from from Sonoma County, so when we would drive over from the North Bay on the weekends to look at homes, we’d look at 8 to even 12 on a Saturday. This over a period of 6 months, basically we looked at a lot of homes! Michelle was so patient and prepared the whole way through all the showings. When we finally found our new home, she was always available for questions, helped us through the process, and even referred us to contractors, movers, landscapers and a cleaning lady. Completely professional, Michelle made the process so much fun, even during a few stressful times. She truly is the best agent we have ever worked with and we look forward to working with her again in the future. When you work with Michelle, its effortless. She makes home buying fun!

“Michelle showed her professionalism best during the final stages of negotiation when multiple offers for our property came about. Her knowledge of the real estate laws were very apparent during these negotiations and her expert advice was spot on. Kudos to Michelle.”

“We were so happy we found Michelle as our agent. She was professional, helpful and knowledgeable throughout the entire home buying process. She was always available for quick communications via phone, email and texts. She answered all of our questions and worked 110% on our behalf during negotiations with the seller. We would highly recommend her for any real estate needs and would definitely call her for our next real estate transaction!”

“Michelle made a complicated process simple. We listed the home we were selling with her and were so impressed at the result, that we called on her again for the purchase of our new home. She is always there with a solution to a problem instead of a response. I would recommend anyone looking to buy or list use her as an agent.”

“Michelle gave my wife and I the best experience we’ve ever had with a realtor. Not only did she show a high level of professionalism throughout the process of selling our house, she’s also really fun to work with! One of her many wonderful qualities is the ability to openly explore all options. She laid everything out for us and helped us decide the best course of action to meet our needs. We never felt forced into anything. After deciding to list our house on the market with Michelle, it got more showings in the first couple of months than it had during the six months we’d had it listed with another realtor. We like regular updates on the status of our property, and she diligently provided them. She went above and beyond by taking the responsibility of giving my three tenants notice when showings were scheduled so we didn’t have to worry about it. All Michelle’s hard work led to two simultaneous offers on our house. She made time to meet with us in person to carefully evaluate both offers. After negotiating an acceptable price and getting the offer signed, we launched into the flurry of activity necessary to complete escrow in 30 days. Michelle had a full understanding of the order of things and was absolutely on top of every aspect of the short escrow. She kept in close communication with us and walked us through every step of the way to make sure we fully understood all the paperwork we were signing. Everything went smoothly, and we were thrilled to close escrow on time. To top it all off, Michelle sent us a very thoughtful selection of truffles and chocolate-dipped fruits to help kick of our celebration of the house sale. If we decide to buy or sell another property in the future, we would want to work with Michelle again. I highly recommend her, and am certain anyone would be impressed with her expertise, professionalism and pleasing personality.”

“Michelle was very helpful during our whole home buying process. There were several times where paperwork needed to be signed or changed and she was always on top of the deadlines to help move the process along. It was our first time buying a home, so she also did a lot of “hand holding” and explaining the details that go into such a major purchase. When we entered into the “just looking” phase, she was very respectful of our budget and the specific items that we were looking for in a home. She spent time with us and gave very honest and market based analysis of the pricing for homes in our areas. We had some unusual circumstances in our process, and on things that Michelle (as well as others in this journey) were unsure of, she would go out of her way to get answers and assist us. It can be very stressful to purchase a home, and Michelle was respectful and helpful throughout the whole process. Even when there were hiccups, she was encouraging and remained positive. We are currently living in our dream home thanks to Michelle! I know reading reviews can sometimes be difficult because it is hard to tell the accurate ones from the inaccurate ones. I hope you will find my experience helpful…”

“Michelle went above and beyond our expectations. We were first time home buyers and were not familiar with a lot of things. She was very patient and guided us through the entire process. She is absolutely amazing to work with. She is so personable and professional. We highly recommend Michelle with your biggest financial decision of your life!”

“I relocated to Calaveras county in mid-May, but met Michelle on my first interview trip back in early March. In fact, I met Michelle before my first interview because I wanted to have a sense of the area before I even considered the job. And, in many ways that first day I spent looking at listings with Michelle is a big part of why I ended up here and she is certainly the reason I found my home! We spent months looking from one end of the county to the other, and I always found Michelle to be kind, helpful, supportive and optimistic. She loves real estate and it shows – sometimes I couldn’t tell which one of us was more excited to see a property – making what can be a stressful time so much more fun. She never hesitated when I needed to go back and look again – even when it took me three visits to decide!

As a long time resident of the county, she weaves her own experience and expertise into the process in such a nice way. I learned so much about the area, and it made me feel really confident about my ultimate choice. I always felt she cared more about my happiness than the sale, and I feel so grateful for all the time and care she dedicated to my search.

Even after I had decided on something to buy, it was Michelle that helped smooth over the negotiations with what I thought were very difficult sellers. She always had the paperwork ready, made sure every deadline was met, arranged all the inspections, met me at the property so many times, and did it all with a smile. I don’t think the sale would have ever happened without all her help and encouragement.

When I finally closed in July, she was the first person to congratulate me, and the one person I know who was genuinely happy that I finally found the perfect home. As it turns out, it was the second home she showed me on that very first day way back in March – her intuition was right – even if it took me a few months to be sure.

You are in good hands with Michelle. Not only is she a great realtor, she is a great person. I would recommend her without reservation to anyone who asked, and although I hope to never move again – she would be my first and only choice if I found myself needing a realtor again. I wish you the same wonderful experience that I had – and I hope you find your own perfect place.”
